Quaker Concern for Animals is one of the world's oldest organisations working for the better treatment of non-human animals. Founded originally as The Friends' Anti-Vivisection Association in 1891, we became Quaker Concern for Animals (QCA) in 1978.
We consider that the Quaker Testimony for Peace and Non-Violence should be extended to our fellow animals and have developed links with the peace movement to this end. We are, for example, affiliates of The Movement for the Abolition of War.
Membership of QCA has always been open to all who share our concerns and we cooperate with other religious and secular animal welfare groups in the United Kingdom and overseas. We are committed to our interfaith policy and in September, for the eighth year, we were represented at the Interfaith Celebration of Animals, organised by Unitarians under the auspices of the World Congress of Faiths, other participants of which include followers of the Buddhist, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh faiths.
On Sunday 22nd Marian Hussenbux, national clerk for QCA will be coming to Nottingham to share the work of QCA and invite discussion of our work. The event will take the form of a bring-and-share lunch followed by a discussion session. Please bring some food and some thoughts on humanity's treatment of non-human animals to share with others.
We welcome those of all faiths and none to this event.
